Beyond Boundaries is a 10-track playlist aiming to feature 10 “out-of-the-box”, outstanding gems! Not exactly unclassified, but certainly unique and uncommon.
“Sound Explorer”: Christos Doukakis
Godspeed You! Peter Andre
(techno, witch house, ‘witch techno’)
Quick pitch: Self-coined as ‘witch techno’, this Manchester-based duo latest single ‘Clubber’, is filled with pulsating, unashamedly evil sounds; This is underground techno at its finest.
(experimental, improvisation, electro-acoustic)
Quick pitch: Swirling synths and woodwinds mingle with ethereal yet sinister vocals, setting the scene for a surreal sci-fi extravaganza.
(contemporary music, cinematic, ambient)
Quick pitch: ‘Mortal’ is the debut single from London based composer and electronic musician Evan Gildersleeve. The piece explores Evan’s personal challenges with mental health, his search for solitude and the conflict of imposed isolation. Stunning visuals by Hamburg based motion artist Nicolas Arnold.
(experimental electronic, indie electronic)
Quick pitch: ‘Hooligan’ is a love song to the wild delinquents who have always claimed the streets as their own: the invisible outsiders who exist beyond the law, skittering in and out of the perception of most city dwellers. Their map of the urban landscape is unique: the streets and shadows read like a dialect all of their own.
(minimal techno, experimental electronic)
Quick pitch: The pulsing, hypnotic basses battle with the shocking, harsh hats and noise that penetrate deeply. Dark and minimal!
(downtempo, experimental electronic)
Quick pitch: A ghostly onslaught of melodic timbres reverberating within a maelstrom of ethereal vocalic layers; interspaced with off-beat percussive stabs that echo the minor key anguish which has become a signature of Stevenson’s catalogue to date. Haunting…
Quick pitch: A dramatic pulsating electronic piece of music… Claustrophobic & dystopic….
(experimental electronic, idm)
Quick pitch: The first single from Gabriel’s debut album ‘#gabecore’ which comes out in December is a walk on the wildest side of experimental electronic music… Will you endure?
(world music, ethnic)
Quick pitch: A gem which is heavily inspired by the cultural heritage of the Vlach ethnic minority in Eastern Serbia.
(progressive metal, djent, jazz rock)
Quick pitch: One the heaviest overall on Antediluvian Projekt’s recent album, containing a few synth parts that were heavily inspired by the 80s aesthetic.
